To make a monkey fist keychain, start by getting 5 feet of paracord, a marlin spike, and key rings. Then, using the marlin spike, fold the cord in half and make a loop. Take the loop and wrap it around the marlin spike.
Wrap the cord, alternating the directions, around the spike until a fist shape is created. Once that’s done, take the loop and overlap it around the keyring.
Now, pull the remaining cord through the loop so the loop stays tight. Finally, make another knot with the remaining cord and trim the excess.
You can now slip the keychain onto your keyring and enjoy your finished product.
